EcoNest - Green Homes Made of Clay, Straw & Timber #green
What’s the first thing you think of when you think of the phrase “EcoNest?” Well, if you thought of an eco-friendly comfortable home, you’re pretty close to the meaning I came up with too. Natural building pioneer Robert Laporte and architect Paula Baker-Laporte created the EcoNest concept over 15 years ago, and along the way have helped people design and build their own custom eco-friendly green homes. All the materials used in the construction of the homes are carefully checked for chemical content and transportation impacts, all local natural materials are sustainably harvested, and these homes are even wired for “Electro-magnetic radiation reduction” to reduce exposure to EMF’s (electromagnetic field) which are produced by electrically charged objects like our computers, wi-fi, and cellphones.
